More about 4100 4170 phenom 965be
  1. fx 6100** not fx 100 sorry lol also does anyone know anything about gtx 660ti like price release date..etc
  2. 965BE is overall better CPU although the 4170 is highly clocked. GTX570 would be the best GPU and fully capable in those games.
  3. do you know anything about the 660 ti and would the 965 be even be better then the 610 and do i need a am cooler and do i need 16 gb of ram??
  4. 6100** also woud i just be better off getting a a intel core i5 3550 with a radeon hd 6870 or a amd 965 be and gtx 570 and should i get the 69uz the 2 free games or still not worth it
  5. one last thing is it true that the amd cpu will be best with and amd gpu or it doesnt matter
  6. 8GB would be plenty for gaming! Here you see the 6100 compared with 980Be http://www.guru3d.com/article/amd-fx-8150--8120-6100-and-4100-performance-review/10
    The stock cooler will work but if you overclock get an AM
  7. sorry im not bumping but also woudn't the 4170 be better i dont need super duper high frames but above the 50s would be nice and is it true that minecraft and max payne benifit from extra ram thanks
  8. 965BE out of those choices, but I still vote i3-2100/2120!
  9. okay so i wont get the 6100 but is the 965be is better than the 4170 and should i get a radeon hd 6950 with 2 f ree games or gtx 570 with nothing
  10. 4170 does well in gaming because of the high clock but its multithreaded performance is nothing to yell home about.
  11. how can i show you my newegg wish list
  12. I'd take the 965BE and the GTX 570. The Phenom is better to your needs than FX and you can OC it to the speed of a 980BE on that stock cooler. The 570 is slightly better than the 6950 though I guess as the margin is small if you want the free games go for that.
  13. im sorry im asking so much can you guys make me a build using amd cpu for under $800 with shipping i dont have an os $850 max and also a build with intel or same price range or wich ever will get better frames and from newegg thanks so much guy and please have links or item numbers thanks sooooo much I LOVE YOU GUYS HERE AT TOMS HARDWARE
  14. thanks man and can you make me a build sorry if its to much but i like how you catered to my needs (gaming) YOU ROCK

    That CPU cooler will let you OC the Phenom II pretty high. Theres a 500GB hard drive for files and porno and then an SSD for windows and games so everything loads super fast! GPU is a GTX480 its often maligned but it provides as much grunt as a gtx570 at a much lower cost meaning we could afford the SSD and stuff.
